Congrats, you’re engaged! So now what? You’ve got a wedding Pinterest board (or two), a million and one checklists, recommendations written on napkins, and a group chat with your bridesmaids — how are you supposed to stay sane?! That’s where the hottest couple of the year comes in. The Knot and Amazon Alexa Skills have partnered up to bring you everything you need to plan your dream wedding through two Alexa skills, and we’re so into it. The Knot Wedding Planner skill will create a personalized wedding day timeline with a minute-by-minute schedule for everyone involved in your big day, and The Knot Flash Briefing skill gives you daily tips and the latest wedding news. You can stay on track without having to lift a finger. (And best of all, both skills are free to enable!) Here are our top three fave features:
wedding planning updates
Get all of your updates in one place. You can ask Alexa for your wedding planning update and she’ll share personalized information such as your wedding day countdown, RSVP tally, budget tracking information, and your next task. She may say, “Congratulations! You have 75 days to go until your wedding in Hudson, New York. Out of 150 invitations sent, 142 are excited to celebrate with you. You have $5,000 of your budget left to spend on your wedding. The Knot recommends you book your wedding day transportation.” See? It’s almost TOO easy.
Things are so much easier to get done when someone just tells you to do them, right? Once Alexa knows your wedding date, she’ll offer advice from The Knot based on where you are in your planning process. For example: “The Knot recommends booking a photographer this month.”
wedding day countdown
If you weren’t already keeping track, at any point you can ask Alexa for your wedding day countdown and she’ll share something like, “You have 20 days until your wedding!” If you just got engaged in the last seven days, she’ll say, “Congrats on your engagement, let the countdown begin. There are 300 days until your wedding!”
